Do you know someone who has been diagnosed with breast cancer? How about someone who has been affected in any way by the disease? People all over this country are affected every day by breast cancer. Not just the women who are diagnosed with it, but their families, friends, coworkers, and everyone connected to them. When a woman is diagnosed with breast cancer, it is frightening news not just for her but for her husband and children (if she has them), her parents and siblings, her friends—male or female—and anyone else who cares about her. Parents may even worry about their female daughters who will grow up to be women and be susceptible to breast cancer someday.
What many people who have been affected by breast cancer agree upon—whether their loves ones beat the cancer or did not—is that finding a cure is the most important thing we can do. Searching for a cure involves raising a lot of money and forwarding science until we reach a day when women and their loved ones won’t have to live in fear of this deadly disease.
There are many ways to support the search for a cure for breast cancer. You could do a breast cancer walk, in which you raise money by getting people to sponsor your walk. You then join with hundreds or even thousands of other supporters in symbolic walk to fight breast cancer. These events are very inspirational, and call much-needed attention to the urgent issue of breast cancer research.
One other way to display your passion for the search to end breast cancer is to design your own custom t-shirts that highlight the message. This way, you can control what you say to the public, whether it’s just people you’re passing on the street, or an audience waiting to hear you speak about breast cancer. There are lots of different ways to design the t-shirts. If your main goal is to get people thinking, then you might want to think up some slogans that really catch the eye and set the mind to work. One liners can often be the most thought-provoking way to grab people’s attention. Just make sure that you stand by the meaning of your slogan before you put it on a t-shirt.
Another angle you can take when designing your t-shirt is to try to inform people about breast cancer. You have to be careful not to put too much information on the t-shirt, though—you want passersby to be able to read it, after all! So choose what you feel are the most important or most illustrative statistics or facts about breast cancer, and highlight them on your t-shirt. This might do just as well with grabbing people’s attention and alerting them to how devastating breast cancer can be. Sometimes people need an example to really be inspired to get involved and make a difference.
However you go about it, don’t hesitate to get out there in your t-shirt and let people know about this cause that is so important to all of us.
